And recently it's become a place for my personal feels too, but I'm working on more crafts now too
The other week, the Vice President of SoHo Publishing pulled me into her office. It was her birthday so I wished her a happy birthday and she didn’t look like she was having the greatest of days. But we were talking. She wanted to make sure that I was fitting in well, getting along with everyone, and learning how things work here.
I told her I was loving it! The people are all really nice and helpful. I feel valuable everyday. My boss is great about making me feel important and valued. I told her I was learning how things work really well and catching on to the work really quickly.
To back track a little bit, I’m not sure how much everyone is aware that there is a lawsuit against Conde Nast. There are lawsuits against them right now for not paying their interns a living wage. There are tons of arguments for both sides here, but this isn’t about that. It’s just a crucial element to the story.
My boss mentions this lawsuit and says it could effect my time with the company. Even though we’re not apart of the main company being sued. The outcome of this lawsuit will effect all publishing internships from here on out. The main message of this is that if the decision of the company is to suspend internships from here on out, I won’t have one anymore, which would make me very sad.
This is one of the highlights of my week, going to an unpaid job. I never thought not getting paid to work would bring me so much joy, but maybe it’s precisely because of that I enjoy it. If you saw my post earlier today, I got quite the haul in yarn. Thousands of yards of yarn for FREE!
Who knows what the coming weeks will bring? I could be happily knitting at my cubicle, or back to a three day weekend in the middle of the week, slinging brunch to the masses to keep myself afloat in this wonderful island. Only time will tell, and I hope I remember to keep you updated
On a scale from Red Heart yarn to bamboo silk alpaca blend yarn, how shitty is your idea
On a scale from Red Heart to Superwash Merino wool, how shitty would men’s sweater leggings be? I want some meggings dammit!
Have you seen Stephen West’s Swants? DO IT!!
I’ve been considering knitting leg warmers for myself since this winter is looking pretty chilly already. I think I’m gonna do it
